A self-confessed "ex-nymphomaniac" Brazilian pastor and missionary from the International Cell Church is preparing to preach about how women can avoid attracting "jerks" in their lives. The controversial subject will be taught alongside teachings on sexuality and sanctification in New Jersey in October.
Pastor Sarah Sheeva is preparing the teachings for an only-women service on October 4, and will follow that up with a Sanctification Seminar on Oct. 6-7 at the Abundant Life Evangelical Community Church (CEVA), in Kearny, New Jersey. The events will be held in Portuguese with English translation provided.
Sheeva was previously a well known secular singer in Brazil, but she has since come to testify throughout the Latin American country how God has worked in her and allowed her to control her sexual desires. She has now become a prominent speaker promoting sexual abstinence before marriage.
Her only-women services have become famous throughout Brazil and are now affectionately referred to as "Princess Services." The services attempt to advise single women on issues related to sexuality and intimacy.
"There [in the Princess Service], single women learn how to stop attracting "Jerks" in their lives," she explained in a recent email to The Christian Post.
The pastor underwent a conversion in 1999 and has gone on to testify about the extraordinary process of sanctification she experienced, which has prompted her to try and reach out to others struggling with similar issues related to sex and intimate relationships.
Pastor Sheeva has recently held her "Princess Service" and "Sanctification Seminar" for Portuguese-speaking believers in Florida.
Her Sanctification Seminars are open to singles as well as whole families, without gender or age restriction. However, male adults and children above 2-years-old are strictly prohibited from attending the Princess Services.
